Verizon Galaxy Nexus Hands-On Image 1 - NJTechReviews

There have been some people on the web saying that there having some issues with the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. Well, it turns out there is really no issues at all. It is just that the way that the Galaxy Nexus shows how many bars you have, may be different from your other devices. David Samberg of Verizon Wireless provided us with this statement below:

“There are no wide spread reports of the Galaxy Nexus malfunctioning. Our support team has had a few inquiries from customers about the signal strength indicator showing a lower number of bars than on their previous phones. While there is no issue with the performance of the device, there is a difference in the way the signal is translated into bars on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus versus other smart phones. A future software update will adjust the signal strength indicator to more closely match other devices.”

First all of not all users are experiencing this, it is only a few customers who have reported this issues. The good thing is that it can be fixed with a software update. This will be coming in the future and it will adjust the signal strength indicator so it’s look like the ones that you are familiar too. Keep in mind that this is not a performance issues what so ever, it is just how your network strength signal is displayed. Have you been experiencing this at all on your Verizon Galaxy Nexus? We will let you know if more info is released and when the software updated is released.



  1. Not true. Regardless of the signal strength “shown”, there is a tremendous difference between my Bionic which has a 4G data connection in my office, and my Galaxy Nexus which does not even reliably connect to 3G, and almost never connects to 4G.

  2. I agree. This is not a “number of bars” issue, this is a connectivity issue. I don’t care if it shows no bars as long as I can get data, that’s all that matters.
